Hosted by CBS 3’s Marc Howard and Alycia Lane, this one-of-a kind outdoor display of classic antique and modern luxury motor cars at the Philadelphia Museum of Art will feature the exclusive Philadelphia area debut of the 2007 Jaguar XK.
 
Highlighted by private tours of the museum’s exclusive Andrew Wyeth exhibit for invited guests, all proceeds will benefit the United Cerebral Palsy. Dr. Frederick Simeone, Philadelphia area neurosurgeon, philanthropist and renowned classic car collector, will be presented with
the UCP "Honoree of the Year" Award.
 
Ralph Lauren’s 1957 Jaguar XK-SS is not only featured in the show but is the subject of this year’s complimentary original art print by Michael Furman, internationally renowned automotive photographer. He will also be available to sign his original art prints as gifts to the guests and provide CDs containing his high-resolution photography of many of the classic cars on display that night.
